BASENJI – DON’T LET GO FEAT. MEREKI

It has been too long since I’ve heard the name Basenji show up in my timeline. The ‘Trackpad EP‘ was one of my favourite releases of 2015 and it feels super weird to say that it’s actually been two years since we last was blessed with his sweet styling of electronica. “Don’t Let Go” is…

HALCYON DRIVE – THE BIRDS

Halcyon Drive has spent the past four years releasing a string of verified yet under-appreciated indie-pop tracks, perfecting their craft with trial and error all it seems leading up to this moment. ‘The Birds‘ see’s the Melbourne three-piece put their best foot forward with a soaring indie belter of a track. A luscious mix of dark…

NOCTURNAL TAPES – VISIONS IV (EP)

Somewhere way up on the Northern Coast of Australia lies the laid back beachside town of Yamba. Now, I don’t know a lot about Yamba, other than someone felt like noting that the town has two pubs was a point of interest to me when I asked them – someone has their priorities straight obviously…

DUA LIPA – NEW RULES (ALISON WONDERLAND REMIX)

Homegrown wonderkid Alison Wonderland has teamed up with the pop goddess in the making Dua Lipa for a fierce as fuck remix of the kick ass single ‘New Rules‘. Bringing her own flavour to the already huge track Alison brings a fresh flair with growling 808’s and an energetic and anthemic build up that we…

JOSH JACOBSON FENCE

There’s something insanely charming and alluring about ‘Fence‘ from New York Future-Soul artist Josh Jacobson. Like diving into a refreshing stream of pop melodies held together by a lush composition of electronic meet RnB the track brings a sense of serenity about it as you’re enveloped into its depths. The smooth baritone of Josh’s voice…

ALY & AJ – TAKE ME

In 10 years a hell of a lot of things can change. I mean we’ve seen Donald Trump elected as President, the rise of The Kardashian empire, Queen B’s pregnancy and a little underdog from out of nowhere called Lorde coming out of nowhere to suddenly be everywhere. Something that hasn’t changed in those 10 years…

THE PLOT 2017 – THE LINEUP

Truth be told, I was kind of losing hope when it came to festival lineups in 2017 (I mean there’s only so many times you can see Dune Rats on a poster in one year). Lucky for me though, there’s a festival out there that seems to be focused on emerging acts and not just…

WINSTON SURFSHIRT – SAME SAME

Not in a long time have I fallen quite so in love with a band from Sydney’s Northern Beaches quite so quickly. I remember it just like it was yesterday, front row in Newcastle watching them open for Rufus, two songs in and bamn I was hook, line and sinker in love with Winston Surfshirt….

Victoria’s Beyond The Valley Festival has today unleashed the behemoth that is their lineup for the three day New Years festivities.

CONVENTIONER – NEVER BREAKING

When I first heard the name Conventioner I was like ‘who the hell is that?’. It’s a name I’d never heard of before, but it turns out this Philadelphia artist has been quietly building a name for himself in a kind of underground pop scene and he’s quite impressive. First appearing in 2015 with his…

FLAMINGO JONES – THE ISLAND DOES CRAZY THINGS

Bringing the tropical vibes to help sail us through the last few weeks of Winter into Spring comes Flamingo Jones with a new video for his track ‘The Island Does Crazy Things‘. The track – released in July – brings a summery beachside dance vibes to a new high, it’s really feeling fresh and feeling…
